I hear ya. My dd seems to be in a phase where toddler clothes are too small, yet little girl clothes are too big. Actually the perfect size for her is a 5T but very few brands make those. 4Ts are too small but XS in kid sizes are too big. Especially pants. My dd has inherited my build- long torso, short legs. All her pants are about six inches too long if they fit in the waist. I have to either hem them or cut them. Oh, she has short arms too! So if a shirt is long enough for her torso, the sleeves are so long they cover her hands! She has tons of clothes, but nothing that really fits her well. Except t shirts.
